I need to be real honest here..... I’m stuck. I don’t know what to write for this review. I’m looking at all these 5 star reviews and thinking that something must be wrong with me. What did I miss in the book?! I hate rating this book low but I have to give my unbiased opinion.

Tabitha and Matthew are soulmates. They are each others #1 from day 1. A tragic event happens that leaves Tabby devastated and heartbroken and she doesn’t know if she’ll ever move on and love again but she does find it in

Sorry, I’m just not articulate enough to explain so many pet peeves, so many “oh no the author didn’t” plot twists and try to describe the sheer improbability of most of the h’s situations. Too much to explain. Jewelsy is too exhausted, so if anyone needs spoilers or deets, just DM me. Sigh.... and it really started off with so much promise too :(

On a positive note; even though I nearly dnf’d a gazillion times and struggled to like the h... I still finished the book, so I gotta give

This was a beautiful and emotional read by a new and up-and-coming author H.B. Jasick!
This was a story of love and loss. You never know how long you will have with your loved ones or what could be waiting for you around the corner. Always strive to move forward, because there is love and life on the other side of grief.
Tabitha’s story had some great twists and turns and all the feels you could want in this quick read. There is adequate backstory and enough “meat” to feel connected to all of the

Tear. Jerker. From the title alone, I expected it to be heartbreaking but there were so many unexpected things that happened and made me not be able to put this down.
I couldn't help but fall in love with the characters and it made what they experienced all the more heartbreaking.
The heroine, Tabitha, goes through the most and I really felt for her and all the heartbreak she had to experience.
Mathew and Brandon are both swoonworthy book boyfriends. I really can't say much more without giving t

This book is a rollercoaster of emotional hell. First I was happy, crazy happy at the cuteness of two of the characters, then HB went and ice skated through my tears only to fix what she did. HB didn’t stop there! She went and savagely ripped my heart out after I was stupid crying over a sweet moment. My husband thought I was having serious issues. So I explained “Because HB is a hooker that writes pretty words.” He then ignored my sobs of happiness mixed with the gutwrentching pain of love lost ...more

Losing You by HB Jasick will give you all the feels. It's a story about love and loss. Friendship and second chances. Overcoming the odds. My heart broke for Tabitha several times but she was a survivor. She persevered no matter how difficult her circumstances were. I think this is a fantastic debut novel. The characters were relatable, and there is enough depth to suck you into their world. The twists and turns keep you on your toes. I look forward to reading anything Ms. Jasick writes in the f ...more

This was one of the most emotional books that I have read. It was so beautiful to see the friendships and the love of these friends evolve. Tabitha had a tough time separating her love for Matthew and her love for Brandon, but in the end she was where she was meant to be. She had two wonderful men that loved her so deeply and friends and family that offered so much support to her and to each other. This book was well written and flowed so beautifully. Good job Ms. Jasick. I look forward to readi ...more

Holy heck, I was put through the emotional wringer with this book. Poor Tabby, I don't think I've ever heard of someone with such rough luck!
That being said, I loved this story so, so much. The loss, the love, the happiness, the sex - it all worked to make a VERY emotional read with amazing surprises weaved throughout.
I absolutely loved the ending. Perfection!

This book took me through the emotional ringer. A story of love and loss, just from the title I expected to cry a little. I didn't cry a little I cried a lot. I though oh wait, it may pick up but nope!

Beautiful story!

What a powerful emotional filled read. Please do have tissues ready. This book nearly broke me. I should say broke me a few times over. Once you read Losing You, you will see why I say that. Tabitha, what can I say other then wow she is one strong lady. Well strong is not the right word. This one starts off with Tabitha and her first love Mathew. Childhood sweethearts from the start. Mathew and Tabitha have this bond and connection one only hopes to find in life. Tragedy strikes leaving Tabitha ...more

This book is hands down one of the most beautiful and emotional stories I have ever read.

This was a story of love, life-long friendships, heartbreak and loss. It definitely makes you appreciate how you truly never know how long you will have with your loved ones or what could be waiting for you around the corner. With unwavering support from friends and family, you somehow find the strength to overcome the odds and to move forward because on the other side of grief there is life and love.

When I say a book gutted me I mean the author tore my heart out stomped on it drank my tears to fuel their writing madness and then shoved everything back in at the end and basically said here this is everything love it, hate it, embrace it all! And that's exactly what H B Jasick did to me with this book, I was heart broken when Matthew died and with him gone she's stuck in limbo of her emotions on losing him plus the emotions when her world is turned upside down.

Losing You, by HB Jasick, was a tear-jerker to say the least. This book has you all up in your feelings!! I loved it!!

Tabitha has had her fair share of heartbreak and tragedy. I don’t want to spoil anything for you, but just know if anyone deserves her fairytale happy ending it’s Tabitha.

Mathew has loved Tabitha since the first day of Pre-K and they have been inseparable ever since. Now it’s time for him to have to leave her b

😭 This is a wine and multi-tissue box read!!
I do not want to take any chance of revealing a spoiler - I will say that this is a definite must read!

Tabitha - at times I did not know where that girl found the strength to get up and face another day - other times I wanted to grab her and tell her to WALK AWAY!
This was such a raw and emotional read -
From the beginning when hope still shined to the end when (not telling) and all the lost and found places in between -

Tabitha (Tabby) and Matthew are sweethearts who have their future planned out but those plans get shattered. Brandon is Tabby's best friend's older brother who has been in love with Tabby but knew she loved Matthew so he never expressed his feelings. Tabby has suffered so much but she has the love and support of her good friends and Brandon. Very emotional story with twists in the plot and the way everyone loved Tabby through the hardships and I was hoping she would fall in love with Brandon bec ...more

Moving, heart felt story of love and loss.
The emotions this book evoked were powerful and honestly hard to swallow to the point I wanted to stop reading.
However the story was so compelling I needed to find out what next?
I’m glad I did!
Childhood friends realize they’re each other’s soulmates, until a moment in time changes all of that.
The result was a pleasant surprise.
Won’t say more but this read is worth the read. The plot was intriguing, and the characters interesting and well developed.

An emotional read this 2018. Why there is a circumstances that may need to be a sacrifice for someone to be happy? I can't take it all in this book. I just love all the characters that I am so sad it happened. It needed tissues while reading Losing You. I caaaaaan't!! Bow to you Miss HB Jasick, you made me cry, and I don't know what else to say. I just love this book to pieces.

I recommended this book to binge you guys! And a little warning that be prepared for what's coming.

Great emotional read. It has some bumps in the road you don't see coming. Has you hoping for the happiness of the characters. Pulling for the strength to see life through and find their HEA. It was a short read, fast paced and great. I received it from booksprout and recommend it to all. This is my voluntary review.

This story will have you in tears from the emotional twists it takes. Tabitha and Matthew were childhood friends turned sweethearts. When his family's livelihood took an economic downturn he was unable to go to college and went into the military instead. Needless to say it took a traumatic turn and Tabitha lost her Matthew. Brandon became a major force in her life and once again she met a tragic episode. Two men that loved her desperately that left its mark. Will she be able to overcome it all a ...more

Loosing you, is an emotionally charged, heartfelt story. It’s a moving read, a tale of true love and pain, but with a happy ever after. HB had my heart twisting and turning the whole time. I laughed, cried and fell in love with her characters. This is a feel good book but be ready for a roller coaster ride!

This was definitely an emotional read. It seemed like Tabby had one bad thing after another happen to her and those she loved. At times, she was too forgiving to those around her. It was a good story though. I am looking forward to reading more from this author! Great debut!

Thank you for the privilege of reading this book! Well done ❤

This is my first book by this author and is a triangle of sorts. This book consumed in a day. A love triangle not in the traditional way. Emotionally invested read. Good book. HEA.
